REPORTS AND COMMUNICATIONS FROM 
CITY OFFICERS. 



MAYOR. 



In (he Matter of the Development of a Comprehensive 

Plan for the Unification of Local Transportation 

Facilities in Chicago. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the fol- 
lowing communication, which was, together with the 
communications submitted therewith, ordered published 
and referred to the Committee on Local Transportation: 

Office of the Mayor, J 
Chicago, June 7, 1937.J 

To the Honorable, the City Council, City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— On May 27, 1937, I received a com- 
munication from the proponents of the "Abbott" plan 
for reorganization of the companies comprising the 
Chicago Surface Lines, presenting an outline of sug- 
gested terms and conditions for the consideration of 
your honorable body in the preparation and passage 
of a new local transportation franchise ordinance. 

On June 2, 1937, I received a similar communica- 
tion from the committee appointed by the court to 
work out a plan for reorganization of the Chicago 
Rapid Transit Company in which that committee 
presents a financial plan for unification of the two 
major transportation companies and also states 
generally that the committee has considered the fun- 
damental principles enunciated by me on January 26, 
1937 and is prepared to cooperate fully. 

While the two communications differ in the sug- 
gested method of approach, the tenor of their contents 
indicates a sincere desire to reach agreement upon a 
basis mutually satisfactory to the city and to the com- 
panies. 

I have accordingly made a written request upon 
both committees asking them to immediately under- 
take the joint development of a comprehensive plan 
that will satisfy the needs of the city for improved 
service and that will lead to early agreement upon a 
plan that can be incorporated in an ordinance for the 
consideration of your honorable body and for early 
submission to public referendum. 

There are attached hereto, copies of the communi- 
cations submitted by the Committees and my replies 
thereto. 

Yours very truly, 



(Signed) 



Edward J. Kelly, 
Mayor

Chicago, Illinois, May 27, 1937. 

To the Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, and Mem- 
bers of the City Council of the City of Chicago : 

The undersigned, Frank M. Gordon and M. H. Mac- 
Lean, were the only bidders at the foreclosure sales 
of the properties of the Chicago Railways Company, 
the Chicago City Railway Company, and the Calumet 
and South Chicago Railway Company, held pursuant 
to the Reorganization Plan and Agreement of the Chi- 



cago Surface Lines dated October 31, 1935, copy of 
which is hereto attached. This Plan contemplates 
and provides for the acquisition and operation by the 
Chicago Surface Lines, Inc., an Illinois corporation, 
of all of the iSurface Lines properties including, in 
addition to those named above, the properties of the 
Southern Street Railway Company and Chicago and 
"Western Railway Company. 

The sale to the undersigned and the Reorganization 
Plan were tentatively but not finally approved in an 
opinion of the United States District Court rendered 
by the Honorable James H. Wilkerson November 21, 
1936. In this opinion and in the order entered thereon 
the Court directed the proponents of the Reorganiza- 
tion Plan to apply to the City for a new ordinance "on 
terms which are not confiscatory and which are fair 
both to the public and to these utilities," authorizing 
the Chicago Surface Lines, Inc., to own and operate 
the properties now being operated by the Chicago 
Surface Lines Board of Operation under the juris- 
diction of the Court. 

In compliance with this order the proponents of 
the Plan, on December 3, announced the selection of 
Guy A. Richardson as their duly authorized represen- 
tative in negotiations with the City. On December 10 
they personally appeared before the Mayor and the 
Local Transportation Committee of the City Council 
and made formal application for the beginning of 
negotiations for an ordinance. 

Since that time, committees of the City Council 
have held numerous public hearings at which vari- 
ous suggestions have been presented by the public, 
the Mayor has submitted a comprehensive discussion 
of the local transportation problem and engineers 
representing the City and the Chicago Surface Lines 
have had frequent conferences on the engineering 
factors involved in the drafting of an ordinance. 

No specific proposals have been made by the pro- 
ponents of the Plan during this period, pending a bet- 
ter understanding of the objectives deemed most im- 
portant by the City and the general public. 

It now seems desirable to submit an outline of 
terms and conditions to be incorporated in an ordi- 
nance for the Chicago Surface Lines, Inc. These sug- 
gestions are tentative. We do not intend to imply 
that the proposed ordinance, to be acceptable, must 
comply in all respects with the principles stated. 
Through further negotiations between representa- 
tives of the City and the proponents of the Reorgan- 
ization Plan, however, it is hoped that an ordinance 
can be drawn which will not be confiscatory, but will 
be fair both to the public and the investors in the 
properties and which, therefore, can be accepted 
under the provisions of Judge Wilkerson's order. 

With this explanation the suggestions of the pro- 
ponents of the Reorganization Plan are submitted as 
follows : 

Outline of Suggested Ordinance to Chicago Sur- 
face Lines, Inc. 

1. Nature of Grant: Terminable Permit under 
Illinois Statute with amount of reserved purchase 
price starting at present fair value of the properties 
of the five existing street railway companies. Such 
initial value to be increased by the cost of any sub- 
sequent additions, extensions and betterments and 
to be reduced by any deductions due to retirements, 
substitutions and abandonments. A Commission to 
be set up by the ordinance to supervise the expendi- 
tures and accounting until the time when there

shall be created and established, pursuant to statute, 
the Chicago Transit Commission. 

2. Properties to be Included: All the properties 
of the five existing street railway companies, so 
as to provide immediately a comprehensive unified 
street railway system under a single ownership and 
management, with appropriate provisions for the 
early establishment of a comprehensive unified 
Surface System of local transportation through the 
acquisition within a specified short period of the 
properties of the Chicago Motor Coach Company at 
such price and upon such terms as may be agreed 
upon by Chicago Surface Lines, Inc., and the owners 
of the Motor Coach properties, satisfactory to the 
City and approved by the Illinois Commerce Com- 
mission; and also with further appropriate provi- 
sions for eventual equipment and operation by Chi- 
cago Surface Lines, Inc., of City-owned subways 
and for eventual acquisition of the whole or part 
of the properties of the Elevated Railroads if de- 
manded by the City after City-owned subways are 
provided suitable for use as part of grantee's sys- 
tem of local transportation, such acquisition of 
Elevated Railroad property to be at such price and 
upon such terms as may be agreed upon by Chicago 
Surface Lines, Inc.. and the owners of such railroad 
properties, satisfactory to the City and approved by 
the Illinois Commerce Commission. 

3. Extensions, Additions and Improvements: 
Those to be made during first five-year period to 
be specified in an Engineering Exhibit to be made 
part of ordinance. Further extensions, after first 
five years, upon direction of City Council and ap- 
proval of Commission. 

4. Removal of Unnecessary Tracks and Substi- 
tution of Bus Operation on Designated Streets: The 
changes to be made during first five-year period to 
be specified in an Engineering Exhibit. Thereafter 
to be made upon direction of City Council and ap- 
proval of Commission. Value of track abandoned 
or removed to be amortized in manner approved by 
Commission. 

5. Special Funds: Of existing street railway 
companies to be made available for investment or 
reinvestment temporarily in extensions, additions 
and betterments of plant or property or as other- 
wise authorized by Commission. 

6. Compensation for Use of City Streets: To be 
measured by an agreed percentage of gross receipts, 
such compensation to be postponed to such mini- 
mum charges as may be agreed upon between the 
City and the Company, all such compensation to 
be paid into a special trust fund which is to be 
used solely for local transportation purposes, to 
which special fund is also to be transferred the 
present Traction Fund created out of fares paid by 
street car riders; this fund to be under control of 
the Chicago Transit Commission. 

7. Subways: Whether provision is to be inserted 
in ordinance fixing time within which City-owned 
subways are to be constructed, to be decided by 
City representatives. 

8. Conveyance of Rights in Existing Tunnels: 
To be made if tunnels are needed for City-owned 
subway constructed for equipment and operation 
by Company as part of its system. 

9. Service Annuities and Insurance for Em- 
ployees: Provisions for setting up and charging 



to operating expenses when approved by Commis- 
sion. 

10. Other Provisions: Provisions of existing 
ordinances not covered by the foregoing and which 
have proved mutually satisfactory and also any 
new and additional provisions deemed mutually 
desirable, to be incorporated in the new ordinance. 

For the purpose of developing all necessary details 
of the foregoing outline, or of any improvement 
thereon or change therein, we respectfully request 
the early resumption of conferences and discussions 
between representatives of the City and of security- 
holders with the object and purpose of formulating 
a complete ordinance which such representatives will 
be willing to recommend to those whom they respect- 
fully represent. 

All of which is respectfully submitted. 

Frank M. Gordon, 
M. H. MacLean, 
By Guy A. Richardson, 
Their duly authorized representative.

/ Office of the Mayor, j 
Chicago, June 7, 1937. \ 

Mr. Guy A. Richardson, 230 South Clark Street, Chi- 
cago, Illinois: 

Dear Sir — This will acknowledge receipt of your 
letter of May 27, 1937, signed as representative of 
Frank M. Gordon and M. H. MacLean, submitting an 
outline of suggested terms and conditions proposed 
to be incorporated in an ordinance for the Chicago 
Surface Lines, Inc. 

On June 2, 1937, the committee appointed by the 
Court to work out a plan of reorganization for the 
Chicago Rapid Transit Company submitted to me a 
suggested plan of capitalization of a unified company 
and proposed distribution of securities of the new 
company to holders of outstanding securities of the 
existing companies. 

While the city is not primarily interested in the 
allotment of securities to any class of security holders 
under a financial plan, it is interested in a reasonable 
valuation, and in obtaining unified and modernized 
service. 

The suggestions contained in the two communica- 
tions are similar in general thought, but differ in the 
suggested method of approach and in detail of 
achievement of the ultimate objectives outlined in 
my statement of January 26, 1937. 

In order that the City Council may have before it 
a comprehensive plan which satisfies the needs of 
the city for improved and unified service, it is urgently 
requested that you immediately undertake, jointly 
with the Committee for Reorganization of the Rapid 
Transit Company, the formulation of such a compre- 
hensive plan. While I realize that many differences 
of opinion may arise, it is hoped that each interest 
will treat with them in a spirit of cooperation and 
conciliation, and that the city may look forward to 
the prompt submission of a comprehensive plan which 
gives promise of early relief in the form of improved 
and extended transit facilities. 

If this is done, I am confident that the City Council 
will give prompt consideration to the passage of the 



3920

necessary ordinances for approval and submission to 
public referendum. 

While, as stated, it is considered that the matter 
of consolidating properties and composing financial 
interests is primarily the private problem of the com- 
panies, the city and its representatives stand ready 
to assist in every way possible. 

Yours very truly, 

Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor.

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of the City of Chi- 
cago, Chicago, Illinois: 

Honorable Sir — On May 18, 1937, we met with Your 
Honor to discuss the problem of local transportation 
so far as it concerns the Chicago Rapid Transit Com- 
pany and you supplemented your public pronounce- 
ments with the statement that there should be unified 
transportation under the operation of one company, 
and further asked if we had a plan to present. We 
promised to present promptly such a plan and are 
enclosing herewith an outline of the plan which we 
have prepared. 

We also attach statement of the "Necessity and Im- 
portance of the Chicago Rapid Transit System as the 
Essential Framework for any adequate system of local 
transportation in the City of Chicago." 

We commenced our study and investigation im- 
mediately upon our appointment by the Federal Court 
and have given continuous and intense attention to 
the problems involved. We have availed ourselves of 
previously prepared financial statistics of the various 
traction systems which we have had verified and 
brought down to date. 

We have also availed ourselves of such conclusions 
as have been reached by the various security groups 
as to their respective bases of participation and have 
given consideration thereto for the purpose only of 
conforming such conclusions to the new classifications 
set forth in the plan. It is believed that the allot- 
ments in each instance are substantially supported 
by the underlying facts. While we are convinced that 
in a unified system the Chicago Rapid Transit Com- 
pany will be of dominant importance, nevertheless in 
arriving at the allotments, proper effect has been 
given to the elements of current property value and 
earning power of the respective systems over a period 
of years. 

We realize that your interest as Mayor of the City 
of Chicago lies in the adequacy of the proposed capital 
structure of the new company and not in the allot- 
ment of securities to the various security holders. We 
therefore bespeak your earnest consideration of the 
adequacy of the proposed capital structure of the new- 
company. We shall be pleased to meet with you or 
with any person or persons you might suggest to 
review the statistics supporting the allotments or 
any other phase of the plan. 

We are prepared to enter into negotiations imme- 
diately for the purposes outlined and await your in- 
structions. 

We submit this plan pursuant to authority granted 
to us as a Reorganization Committee for the Chicago 
Rapid Transit Company appointed by the Honorable 
James H. Wilkerson, Judge of the United States Dis- 



trict Court, and for your convenience we attach hereto 
a copy of the Memorandum of Judge Wilkerson dated 
April 28, 1937. Because of the fact that the Court 
has stated that Mr. Shaw does not represent any in- 
terest in this proceeding and that he has appointed 
him as advisor to the Committee on engineering and 
valuation matters, Mr. Shaw is not taking part in this 
report. 

Very truly yours, 

W. J. Lynch, Chairman 
Sidney L. Castle 
Byron V. Kanaley 
fi D. F. Kelly 

Reorganization Committee, 
Chicago Rapid Transit Company. 



In the District Court of the United States for the 
Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division 

In the Matter of 

CHICAGO RAPID TRANSIT COMPANY, 

Debtor. 

No. 65037 

MEMORANDUM 

Wilkerson, District Judge : 

The Court has considered the petition of the debtor 
presented on April 22, 1937, and the suggestions of 
the parties with reference to the membership of a 
reorganization committee. The Court has tried to 
select a committee which is representative of the dif- 
ferent interests in the proceeding. The committee 
will be composed of the following: D. F. Kelly, Wal- 
ter A. Shaw, William J. Lynch, Sidney L. Castle and 
Byron V. Kanaley. 

Mr. Shaw, who was a member of the Public Utilities 
Commission of Illinois, and who has more recently 
acted as advisor to the Court in the matter of the 
reorganization of the Middle West Utilities Company, 
has been made a member of this Committee, and has 
been designated by the Court as the advisor to the 
Committee on engineering and valuation matters. Mr. 
Shaw does not represent any interest in this proceed- 
ing, and is named by the Court to assist in working 
out a solution of the engineering and valuation prob- 
lems involved in harmony with the views of the Mayor 
and City Council as to the unification of the instru- 
mentalities of transportation in Chicago. 

28 April, 1937. 



Capitalization of Unified Company and Distribution 

of Securities of the New Company to Holders 

of Outstanding Securities of the 

Existing Companies. 

1. The capitalization of the new unified transpor- 
tation company as outlined in the accompanying 
schedules presupposes the granting of a comprehen- 
sive ordinance by the City of Chicago to the new 
company embodying reasonable financial provisions. 
These provisions should give cognizance to the gen- 
eral condition of transportation properties and should 
be designed to be fair to the public, the present in- 
vestors and employees. They should recognize the 
necessity of the new company being in a position to 
raise new capital to provide the public with modern, 
comfortable and efficient transportation service, in- 
cluding necessary extensions and betterments to make 
the seiwice commensurate with the growth of the

city. The proposed capital structure of the new com- 
pany is designed with this purpose in mind; it frees 
the present properties from fixed first mortgage in- 
terest requirements except on obligations to be created 
equivalent in the aggregate to treasury and renewal 
fund cash. The purpose of such cash, exclusive of 
working capital, will be for physical improvements, 
extensions and renewals. 

2. The attached schedules show the common stock 
of the new company in number of shares only. These 
shares will be of no par value, and their expressed 
value will be ascertained by the finding of value of 
the new property for capitalization purposes. The 
stock will be issued in two classes, identical in all 
respects except for stated value. The determination 
of the stated values will, however, not change the vot- 
ing power of approximately 63 per cent of the aggre- 
gate to the shares allotted the Surface Lines securities 
and 37 per cent allotted the Elevated securities. 

3. The proponents of this financial plan believe 
with the Mayor that the proper approach toward a 
solution of the traction problem is a consolidation 
forthwith of the properties of the existing transporta- 



tion companies. They have thoroughly considered the 
traction pronouncement of the Honorable Edward J. 
Kelly, Mayor of the City of Chicago, made last Janu- 
ary, and are prepared to cooperate fully. 

4. The purchase price to the City, or its nominee, 
to be inserted in the Ordinance, it is assumed will 
be arrived at after negotiations between the City's 
representatives and those of the present systems. 
Property regarded as not useful for purposes of the 
new company and to be abandoned, or disposed of, 
will, of course, be a deduction from the system by 
which it is owned. Otherwise, it is assumed that 
proportionate treatment shall be accorded the respec- 
tive companies. 

5. It is contemplated that the properties of the 
Chicago Motor Coach Company shall be acquired by 
the new company and the necessary additional securi- 
ties will be issuable for such purpose. 

6. In consummation of this problem, due recogni- 
tion must be given to the authority of the Federal 
Court, the Illinois Commerce Commission and any 
other regulatory body having jurisdiction.

Necessity and Importance of the Chicago Rapid 
Transit System as the Essential Framework 
for Any Adequate System of Local Trans- 
portation in the City of Chicago. 



I. 



description of THE CHICAGO rapid transit company 
railroad system. 

The Chicago Rapid Transit Company is an elevated 
railroad system operated in the City of Chicago and 
extending through certain suburbs of said city, all 
located within the County of Cook and State of Illinois. 
It is a public utility and common carrier under the 
jurisdiction of the Illinois Commerce Commission and 
the City of Chicago. 

It operates 82.15 route miles, of which 60.87 miles 
lie in the City of Chicago. The service of the elevated 
system is available to 20% of the area of the City of 
Chicago, and within convenient walking distance of 
40% of the people of Chicago. The tracks of this 
railroad are, generally speaking, laid on a steel struc- 
ture and elevated above street grades. This structure 
is built for two, three or four tracks, and is usually 
of the deck girder type. The bottom of the structure 
girders are usually 18 feet above street grade and are 
supported by steel columns. A large part of the sys- 
tem is built on private rights of way, and movements 
of trains are not affected by street traffic. 

The Rapid Transit lines have station stops at from 
one-quarter to one-half mile intervals, and the sta- 
tions themselves are similar to railroad stations, being

built either on the ground with stairways connecting 
the platforms, or built on the platform level. The 
station buildings are heated and equipped with public 
comfort conveniences, with concessions and tele- 
phones. The station platforms are covered to protert 
patrons from the weather and are built at the same 
level as car platforms, no steps being necessary in 
boarding or alighting. 

On certain divisions the structure is of concrete 
with retaining walls and fill, the tracks being laid on 
ballast on the fill. Within the city a very small per- 
centage of the mileage of the system is at grade, and 
there again open track construction on ballast is used. 
This type of construction exists also in the suburban 
towns and villages served. Steam railroad standards 
are followed throughout in the maintenance and 
operation of switches, frogs and crossings. Track 
junctions are controlled by interlocking towers with 
standard forms of route protection. In those locations 
where tracks are at surface grade the highway cross- 
ings are protected with gates or automatic crossing 
protection signals, thereby permitting free running 
over highway intersections. Car equipment is con- 
structed for train operation with automatic airbrake 
equipment, standard wheels and multiple unit control. 

All-night service is furnished on all branches of 
the system. Rapid Transit train operation is similar 
to standard operation on steam railroads in that a 
definite dispatching system is used with all trains or- 
dered out of terminals by dispatchers on a prescribed 
schedule and checked en route as to schedule adher- 
ence by tower men or intermediate dispatchers or 
train clerks. Employees are governed by a book of 
rules following in general, standard steam railroad 
rules and regulations.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



June 9, 1937 



A single fare is charged for any ride in the same 
general direction over the division of the elevated 
railroads within the city, and a small additional fare 
is charged in some cases where operation is extended 
outside of the city. Transfers are 'permitted from the 
trains of all divisions to the trains of all other divi- 
sions at the stations on the Union Loop, where trans- 
fer bridges have been built at convenient places to 
facilitate such transfer, and transfers are also per- 
mitted at certain points where the tracks of the 
different divisions intersect. Transfers are also per- 
mitted at places where the trains of the various 
branches of any division diverge from the main line 
of such division. 

The Chicago Rapid Transit system consists of four 
main trunk divisions radiating from the Central Busi- 
ness District and terminating in thirteen outlying 
branches. The major portion of Rapid Transit traffic 
terminates in or passes through the Downtown Busi- 
ness District. 

II. 

STATUS OF THE CHICAGO RAPID TRANSIT COMPANY UNDER 
VARIOUS PLANS FOR UNIFICATION OF LOCAL TRANS- 
PORTATION SYSTEMS WITHIN THE CITY OF CHICAGO. 

In every engineering report that has been made 
relative to the local transportation situation in the 
City of Chicago, and in every draft of any ordinance 
designed to improve or solve the traction situation in 
Chicago, the Chicago Rapid Transit System has been 
considered of paramount importance. With the ex- 
ception of the report for a system of subways by Bion 
J. Arnold (Chief Subway Engineer for the City) to 
Mayor Fred A. Busse and the City Council in January, 
1911, the present system of elevated railways with 
improvements and extensions have been considered 
the essential backbone of any comprehensive plan. 

The following quotations from such reports and 
ordinances for the past 25 years demonstrate the su- 
- preme importance of the Chicago Rapid Transit sys- 
tem. (Emphasis supplied.) 

Report by Bion J. Arnold. January, 1911, made to 
Hon. Fred A. Busse, Mayor : 

"The ultimate plan to be kept in mind in analyz- 
ing the transportation problem of the City of Chi- 
cago should be one that will lead toward securing a 
transportation system that no matter how owned 
will eventually gather the passengers by means of 
surface line cars and deliver them to high speed 
subway or elevated trains which, in turn, will bring 
them to and through the business district, to what- 
ever extent it may be expanded, in economically 
and safely operated heavy, high speed trains, stop- 
ping infrequently, in order that high average speed 
may be made, with the intermediate points between 
these stops served by the present surface line cars 
or local elevated or subway cars." 

Report of the Chicago Traction and Subway Com- 
mission on a Unified System of surface, elevated and 
subway lines to the City Council December 15, 1916, 
which is commonly known as the "Parsons-Ridgeway 
Report" : 

"What is needed is briefly: 

"To provide main rapid transit lines that will 
serve all parts of the City, distribute traffic, relieve 
congestion and carry people to and from all the 
business districts of the City, whether central or 
outlying. 



"To provide rapid transit routes outside of the 
loop district, enabling through passengers to travel 
to destination direct without being unnecessarily 
diverted into or through this district. 

"To provide express service by the addition of 
third and fourth tracks on all parts of the rapid 
transit system. 

"Some of the facilities to be built must be sub- 
ways, others should be elevated structures, while a 
few can be a combination of both types. 

"This Rapid Transit system is to be extended as 
may be necessitated by the City's development from 
time to time so as to serve the new and growing 
subcenters and residential districts. Elevated plat- 
forms are to be lengthened and at convenient points 
throughout the City transfer facilities are to be 
provided from the Surface Lines to the Rapid Tran- 
sit Lines to give as complete an interchange of 
traffic as is consistent with the diversion of the 
long haul traffic to the Rapid Transit Lines and the 
short haul traffic to the Surface Lines. 

"This will give a rapid transit system which will 
serve directly nearly two-thirds of the City's popu- 
lation as at present located, assuring a reasonable 
walking distance. A large part of the remainder 
will be served by transfer from Surface to Rapid 
Transit Lines at convenient points." 

George Weston, Consulting Engineer. Paper pre- 
sented to Western Society of Engineers, May 6, 1918. 
Unified Transportation System for the City of Chicago 

"In the development of such comprehensive local 
transportation system the basic idea is to utilize the 
elevated lines and subways as main rapid transit 
lines serving all principal sections of the city, and 
to use the surface lines for local traffic and as feed- 
ers to and distributors from the rapid transit lines. 
A main feature is the relief of congestion in the* 
central business district (including the loop) and 
the creation of rapid transit routes outside of the 
loop district. 

"All of these elements have been analyzed by the 
Traction and Subway Commission in its recent re- 
port to the City of Chicago and their recommenda- 
tion coincides with the expressed policy of the 
Board of Supervising Engineers and other compe- 
tent students of the subject, that coordinating the 
development of the surface and rapid transit facili- 
ties to the highest state of combined efficiency, the 
best results will be obtained for the general public; 
the rapid transit lines to do the long haul work and 
the surface lines the short haul and to serve as 
feeders to the rapid transit lines as far as prac- 
ticable. 

"The Traction and Subway Commission have 
made specific recommendations for service im- 
provements, which are principally rapid transit, 
excepting necessary surface line extensions in out- 
lying districts and such surface changes as may be 
necessary in order to permit the surface cars to 
utilize the surface subways that will be provided 
for their use, and to provide transfer facilities as 
feeders to the rapid transit lines." 

Report on a Unified Transportation System for the 
City of Chicago to the Local Transportation Commit- 
tee of the City Council— by R. F. Kelker, Jr., May 
22, 1923.

"The operation of street cars or motor buses 
supplies the need for local distribution from traffic 
centers and also furnishes a convenient means of 
local transit. 

"Train service on rapid transit lines meets the 
demand for mass transport and efficiently carries 
large numbers of people at a high rate of speed 
between delivery points. 

"With the expansion of a community the length 
of haul increases and the street car riders are com- 
pelled to sacrifice more and more of their time 
going to and from their places of business or em- 
ployment. The average ride of the long haul riders 
on surface cars in Chicago now requires about 45 
minutes. High speed rapid transit service would 
reduce this time in many instances to 25 minutes 
or less, a saving of not less than 20 minutes (44% ) . 

"Simply stated, an expanding metropolitan area 
with its increasing population requires primarily 
the development of a means of transport that will 
overcome the increasing length of haul by greater 
speed and also have the capacity to carry passen- 
gers in great numbers. 

"While it is necessary that only subways be built 
in congested areas, it is my opinion that a rapid 
transit system for Chicago should consist largely of 
elevated railroads supplemented by subways. 

"I fully recognize the necessity of relieving the 
downtown streets from the obstruction caused by 
street car operation on the surface so that the ac- 
tivity and growth of the business of Chicago may be 
neither restricted nor retarded and as the plan 
herewith recommended is developed a material im- 
provement in traffic conditions can be economically 
secured. 

"Such improvement will be accomplished by the 
extension of the elevated system into all parts of 
the city, with transfers at the intersecting surface 
lines. This will place the rapid transit system 
within easy access of a large proportion of the 
population, greatly increasing the use of the ele- 
vated system by diverting the long haul riders from 
the street cars to the elevated lines. The construc- 
tion of subivays in the territory adjacent to the 
present loop district will break down the barriers 
of that district thereby expanding the Central Busi- 
ness District into an area four times its present 
size. Moreover, the construction of rapid transit 
subways in State street for through North and 
South travel and in Clark street for through North- 
west and Southwest service will attract a large 
number of the car riders who now use the street 
cars. Some of the existing surface lines now serv- 
ing the Central Business District will be paralleled 
by extensions of the elevated lines, thereby afford- 
ing a far more rapid service with sufficient time 
saving to induce those now using the street cars to 
use the subway and elevated facilities. This shift- 
ing of load will reduce correspondingly the number 
of long haul street car riders, and materially dimin- 
ish the number of street cars operating to the loop. 
As a direct consequence, these changes combined 
will diminish greatly the number of street cars 
operating in the Central Business District. The 
demand for street car service then will be of a 
local character tending to remain constant. It is 
estimated that at the end of the First Period of 
Construction a satisfactory service could be rend- 
ered by 70'% or less of the number of street cars 
now operated in the Central Business District." 



Report to the Committee on Local Transportation, 
City Council, City of Chicago, 1924— R. F. Kelker, Jr. 

"The street railway lines, having over one thou- 
sand miles of single track, are important transit 
factors but they do not give rapid transit, as street 
cars must make frequent stops and high speeds 
cannot be attained. They are important factors in 
a comprehensive transportation plan as feeders or 
branches but they cannot provide rapid transit in 
a metropolitan city. 

"The elevated roads of Chicago constitute prac- 
tically the only existing facilities which serve an 
appreciable part of the city and carry the public 
rapidly. 

"It would appear that the thickly populated sec- 
tions of the city are generally adjacent to the ele- 
vated lines. This is natural and almost inevitable, 
as population follows rapid transit routes. It sel- 
dom, if ever, precedes. Few people are content to 
live in areas far distant from their places of em- 
ployment when their only means of transportation 
are buses and street cars. 

"The advantage of separate tracks (elevated) for 
express service is found not only in the saving of 
time between the points of origin and destination, 
but in the fact that it is less expensive to transport 
passengers when once the train is filled than it is 
to make repeated stops and then reduce the aver- 
age speed. 

"The long haul traffic would be removed from 
street cars, when the length of ride is excessive and 
the operating cost high, and placed on rapid transit 
lines, thereby adding greatly to the comfort of the 
passengers and substantially reducing the cost of 
the service. The street cars would then fulfill their 
natural function as feeders to and distributors from 
the rapid transit lines, and the rapid transit lines 
would be assured of a large volume of traffic, greatly 
in excess of that which is estimated in the event 
that the system (elevated) is operated indepen- 
dently." 

Report of the Subway Advisory Commission to the 
Sub-committee on Subways for the Local Transporta- 
tion Committee of the Chicago City Council, August, 
1926. 

"In a city of a hundred thousand this average 
distance (average length of ride) may be roughly 
placed at two to three miles. The trolley car cov- 
ers that distance in 15 to 20 minutes. No other 
transportation is necessary. 

"But in a city of 1,000,000 the average distance 
mav be placed at five to six miles. The trolley car 
requires for that distance some 37 to 45 minutes. 
The citizen who has to make this daily trip is en- 
titled to a type of transportation of greater speed. 
This fact introduces the rapid transit train. 

"As the size of a city increases not only does the 
average distance between citizens and places in- 
crease, but also the obstructing and delaying cross 
traffic increases. Further, the cross traffic increases 
as the center of the city is approached. In the in- 
creased cross traffic of central business districts we 
find a second engineering reason for the introduc- 
tion of the rapid transit train. 

"The rapid transit train possesses the two char- 
acteristics implied by the name : 



3926 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



June 9, 1937 



(a) Rapidity of transit by reason of a tracking 
which avoids cross traffic. 

(b) Grouping of several cars in a train, each car 
preferably with several doors, requiring a 
minimum of time for loading and unloading. 

'"To summarize the position in the field of trans- 
portation occupied by the rapid transit train on an 
elevated structure: It stands first (as compared to 
the subway) in the matter of economies. It ties 
in the matter of engineering. And it leads the sub- 
way incalculably in the matter of the amenities of 
transportation, the passenger's personal viewpoint, 
the pleasantness to him of the time spent in being 
transported. 

"The importance of this position of the elevated 
cannot be over emphasized in studying and solving 
the transportation problem of Chicago." 

Plan submitted to the City Council by henry a. 
blair for a Unified Transportation System for Chicago, 
January, 1927. 

"With universal transfers and with such greatly 
increased facilities on the rapid transit lines peo- 
ple traveling in the direction of those routes could 
use existing surface lines and new bus routes to get 
to the rapid transit lines. All sections of the City 
would be better served because greater speed and 
greater regularity could be provided for all travel- 
ing to the central district or on lines (street car) 
whose operation is now affected by the delays 
caused by street congestion in the Central Area. 
Material savings in the number of cars due to 
greater speed would permit more service in all sec- 
tions, and since the long distance riding would be 
able to use the rapid transit lines the surface cars 
would ha.ve smaller loads and much more comfort 
for the passengers. 

"It is greatly to the advantage of the City and 
of its citizens, that the use of the rapid transit 
facilities be available to the highest possible num- 
ber. With universal transfers, the added speed of 
the rapid transit lines will be available to reduce 
the time required for many routes of travel. 

"More than seven boulevards 100 feet wide would 
be required to accommodate automobile transpor- 
tation sufficient to provide an equivalent of the 
service now rendered by the trains on the north- 
western division of the Chicago Rapid Transit Lines 
and 25 such boulevards would be required to accom- 
modate in automobiles the maximum number of 
passengers that could be carried in one direction 
with modern equipment and operation on a four- 
track rapid transit structure. 

"The coordinated operation will make attractive 
the use of the surface lines as a convenience to 
reach the rapid transit lines for the longer trips, 
and because these long distance riders are not car- 
ried by the surface cars there will be much more 
comfortable conditions for those making short 
trips." 

On September 7, 1929, the Committee appointed by 
the Local Transportation Committee of the City of 
Chicago, consisting of Messrs. A. A. Sprague, Joshua 
D'Esposito, and George Woodruff, to submit its 
opinion of the value of the Chicago Rapid Transit 
Company properties, which valuation was to be used 
as the initial capital value of the Rapid Transit prop- 
erties in the new ordinance to be granted to the 
Chicago Local Transportation Company, after arriv- 



ing at its conclusion as to the fair value of the prop- 
erties of the Chicago Rapid Transit Company, stated 
as follows : 

"It may be argued with convincing logic that 
their properties presently will be worth much 
more than they are today, as parts of a compre- 
hensive transportation system. That is our delib- 
erate judgment. In the proposed consolidated 
transportation system, the Elevated Lines will be 
the backbone of the system. They will supply the 
foundation lines for rapid transit. With more 
track capacity through the downtown area and a 
relatively small mileage added outside they will 
have a 100 percent greater capacity for service and 
the net earnings should be increased thereby." 

Prior traction ordinances all provide for rapid 
transit by the present elevated lines and extensions 
thereof in conjunction with subways and transfers 
between Rapid Transit and street car lines as the 
basis for improving transportation facilities. They 
briefly provide as follows : 

August 22, 1918 (ordinance by City Council) 

Provides that the existing street railways and 
elevated railroads be combined and coordinated 
as a comprehensive unified local transportation 
system with universal transfers, so improved and 
extended and operated in conjunction with a sys- 
tem of subways to be constructed and owned by 
the City as to provide rapid, convenient and eco- 
nomical local transportation. 

January 10, 1927 (Dever-Busch ordinance) 

Provides that the existing street and elevated 
railway systems be combined and coordinated into 
a comprehensive, unified, local transportation sys- 
tem with universal transfers and so improved, 
extended, supplemented and operated in conjunc- 
tion with a system of subways to be constructed 
and owned by the City as to provide rapid, con- 
venient and economical local transportation facil- 
ities. 

September 22, 1928 (ordinance by City Council) 

Provides that the existing street railway system 
and elevated railway system be combined as a uni- 
fied local transportation system with universal 
transfers and improved, extended and operated in 
conjunction with a subway or system of subways 
to be constructed and owned by the City so as to 
provide a comprehensive, convenient, efficient and 
economical system of local transportation facilities. 

The 1930 ordinance providing for a comprehensive 
unified local transportation system for the City of 
Chicago. 

The 1930 ordinance which contemplated a uni- 
fication of the Chicago Rapid Transit Company and 
the Chicago Surface Lines, with additions and better- 
ments thereto, provided for an expenditure of some 
Two Hundred Million Dollars ($200,000,000.00) for 
additions and improvements. More than three-quar- 
ters of this amount was to be used in the extension 
of the elevated system as well as for the construction 
of a subway to be provided by the City for Rapid 
Transit operation through the Central Business Dis- 
trict. 

The paramount importance of the elevated system 
was well recognized by Walter L. Fisher in his report 
to Judge Wilkerson analyzing the 1930 ordinance. 
In this report he pointed out that the rapid transit 
lines in subways through the Central Business Dis-

trict and on elevated structures on private rights of 
way free from the congestion of public streets will 
in any event form the essential frameicork and skele- 
ton of any adequate system of local transportation 
for Chicago and its metropolitan area. 

III. 

THE INTERCOMPANY TRANSFER ORDER OP THE ILLINOIS 

COMMERCE COMMISSION PROVIDING FOR EXCHANGE 

OF TRANSFERS BETWEEN THE LINES OF THE 

RAPID TRANSIT COMPANY AND THE 

THE CHICAGO SURFACE LINES. 

On April 11, 1934, the City of Chicago filed a peti- 
tion with the Illinois Commerce Commission praying 
"that the Commission institute an inquiry investiga- 
tion or hearing for the establishment of through 
routes with transfer privileges between the Chicago 
Rapid Transit Company. Chicago Surface Lines and 
the Chicago Motor Coach Company" at a joint rate 
of 10c. The apparent reason for the City's filing of 
the petition was to gain for the public of the City 
of Chicago some of the benefits contained in the 1930 
unification ordinance. After prolonged hearings the 
Commission entered an order on July 22, 1935, which 
established through routes and joint rates between 
the two companies at 52 points of transfer. The Com- 
mission's order was for an experimental period of 
one year from September 22, 1935, to September 21, 
1936. which has since been extended to September 
30, 1937. 

The Commission in its order well recognized the 
value of the Chicago IRapid Transit system in that its 
service was faster, more comfortable and more de- 
sirous to the public than the service rendered by 
the Chicago Surface Lines. Some of the findings 
contained in the order of the Illinois Commerce Com- 
mission, of July 22, 1935, and which stress the im- 
portance and desirability of the service of Chicago 
Rapid Transit Company are as follows: (emphasis 
supplied) 

(11) "*** that the fastest and most comfortable 
means of travel should be made available to these 
people and thereby definitely serve public con- 
venience and necessity; that the surface lines is 
a slower medium of transportation for long trips 
than the rapid transit lines." 

(13) "*** that it has been continuously recog- 
nized through thirty years of study and negotia- 
tions that what Chicago needs is improvements in 
local transportation service; that improvements in 
local transportation service have generally been 
recognized to be possible only by co-ordinating the 
rapid transit service and that of the Chicago Sur- 
face Lines and making that service available to 
all the people of Chicago; that all traction ordi- 
nances dealing ivith these problems gave major 
consideration to the extension and improvement of 
rapid transit service in the City of Chicago; that 
the last of such ordinances, the Ordinance of 1930 
'Providing for a Comprehensive Unified Local Trans- 
portation System for the City of Chicago' includes 
very complete extensions and improvements of 
rapid transit service by the construction of addi- 
tional facilities and by means of transfers from the 
surface to rapid transit lines; that the ordinance 
essentially sought to make available rapid transit 
facilities to all residents of the City of Chicago; 
that this ordinance was approved at a referendum 
of the people by a vote of 6 to 1 ; that any improve- 
ment in local transportation service should make 
rapid transit facilities more readily available to 
all;" 



(19) "*** that the rapid transit lines operate 
largely on elevated structures and/or private rights 
of way, and are not affected by the movement of 
other traffic; that they operate at relatively uni- 
form speeds for longer distances than the surface 
lines; that the rapid transit lines have station 
stops at from % to Vi mile intervals with addi- 
tional express service on almost all branches, which 
make long runs between station stops; that each 
street intersection is a possible stop for the pick-up 
and discharge of surface lines passengers; that 
the" rapid transit lines make less frequent stops 
than the surface lines; that stops at each corner 
facilitate the pick-up of passengers but is incon- 
venient to long haul riders, that the uniformity of 
speed and less frequent stops means greater con- 
venience; that there is a frequent interchange of 
passengers on the surface lines with the consequent 
milling of passengers within the cars; that this 
frequent interchange of passengers in surface cars 
in the aisles is one of the inconveniences of exist- 
ing surface lines service; that there is very little 
interchange of passengers on the rapid transit 
lines; that traffic and street noises are lessened 
for passengers using the rapid transit facilities; 
that seats are as easily found on the rapid transit 
trains as on the surface cars; that in the event 
of standing loads, the necessity of standing on 
the rapid transit lines would be for a shorter time 
than on the surface lines for the same trip; that 
the service provided by the rapid transit lines is 
more comfortable and convenient than that pro- 
vided, by the surface lines; that the service provided 
by the rapid transit lines is more reliable than 
surface lines' service and is seldom affected by 
weather conditions; that heavy rains and snows 
are impediments to surface lines service; that the 
maintenance and availability of the most reliable 
transportation service, as well as a more comfort- 
able and convenient service is necessary for the 
public convenience ; that the service furnished by 
the Chicago Rapid Transit Company is superior to 
and more comfortable than the service of the Chi- 
cago Surface Lines;" 

(20) "*** that the average speed of the Chicago 
Surface Lines in the loop area is five miles per hour 
and eleven miles per hour between terminals; that 
the service furnished by the surface lines is a slow 
medium for reaching the central business district 
from outlying areas; that the average speeds on 
the rapid transit lines vary from the slowest local 
service of 14.7 miles per hour to the fastest ex- 
press service between terminal and loop of 25.5 
miles per hour; that all of the rapid transit lines, 
express service is operated at speeds of over 18.2 
miles per hour with service on the Northwestern 
Division and Lake Street Division operated at 
speeds of between 20 and 25 miles per hour; that 
the Chicago Rapid Transit Com,pany offers a faster 
service than the Chicago Surface Lines, because of 
its operations on elevated structures and private 
rights of way, unobstructed by other traffic at 
street level, its less frequent stops, and because 
of its many express services; that this higher speed 
becomes of increased advantage for long trips; 
that this service is now only available to those 
passengers whose origins and destinations are near 
the rapid transit lines; that if the combination 
surface and rapid transit facilities were used in- 
stead of an all surface line trip from common 
points to the central business district, material 
savings in travel time would be realized;" 

(21^ "*** that the surface lines reach nearly all 
areas of the City of Chicago, that it conveniently

provided for the pick-up and discharge of passen- 
gers: that the rapid transit lines reaches only a 
limited area of the city and stops less frequently, 
but renders a faster and more comfortable service 
to those to 'whom, it is available; that the services 
of both companies can be readily combined to 
secure the benefits of both, by means of inter- 
company transfers; that thus most passengers can 
have origins or destinations anywhere in the city 
and yet have the advantage of high speed, com- 
fortable rapid transit service for the largest part 
for their trips;" 

That the Commission was justified in its findings 
above enumerated is proven conclusively by the use 
of the inter-company transfer privilege during its 
first year of operation during which period thirty 
million passengers availed themselves of the transfer 
privilege. This number is progressively increasing 
each month and is now on the basis of approximately 
thirty six million passengers per year in spite of the 
fact that the present inter-company transfer plan 
is not a "universal transfer plan" but is limited to 
fifty-five points of interchange between the two sys- 
tems within the City out of a possible eighty-nine 
points outside of the Union loop and in the face of 
material restrictions placed upon the availability of 
the transfer privilege at these fifty-five points. 

However, the extensive use of the inter-company 
transfer privilege is concrete and conclusive proof 
of the value and importance of the Chicago Rapid 
Transit system in any plan for the improvement of 
transportation in Chicago. It must be concluded that 
the City Council in passing its resolution authorizing 
a petition for universal transfers to be filed with the 
Illinois Commerce Commission and in vigorously 
prosecuting the same, recognized the importance and 
value of extending to the people of Chicago the right 
of extensive use of Rapid Transit facilities. The 
City's recognition of the importance of Rapid Transit 
service is further evidenced by the fact that the 
City of Chicago is at present presenting further evi- 
dence to the Illinois Commerce Commission for the 
purpose of adding additional transfer stations in an 
attempt to make the present inter-company transfer 
privilege a universal one within the City. 

An inter-company transfer is only obtainable by 
the payment of an additional 3c fare over the fare 
charged by the Chicago Surface Lines. The fact that 
during the present year more than thirty million 
people are paying this additional charge is conclu- 
sive evidence that in the minds of the public the 
service rendered by the Chicago Rapid Transit Com- 
pany is appreciated and wanted.

THE DISTINCTION AND SUPERIORITY OF THE TRANSPORTA- 
TION SERVICE RENDERED BY THE CHICAGO RAPID 
TRANSIT COMPANY AND THE NECESSITY OF 
PROVIDING FOR ADDITIONS TO RAPID TRANSIT 
FACILITIES IN ANY UNIFICATION PLAN 
OF LOCAL TRANSPORTATION 
COMPANIES. 

As demonstrated in the various engineering reports 
and proposed ordinances, as well as the use of the 
present intercompany transfer system between the 
Surface Lines and the Rapid Transit, which have 
previously been referred to, the Chicago Rapid 
Transit system is indispensable as the essential frame 
work of any adequate system of local transportation 
for the City of Chicago. Its worth has been pointed 
out repeatedly by expert engineers and the proof of 



their opinions is found in the present use by the 
public of the inter-company transfer operation. 

The important features of the Chicago Rapid 
Transit system which find favor in the eyes of trac- 
tion experts, as well as the general public, are as 
follows : 

(1) Its rapidity of service ranging from its slow- 
est local service of 14.7 miles per hour to its fast- 
est express service of 25.5 miles per hour; 

(2) Its operation on elevated structures, mostly 
on private rights of way, not affected by street 
traffic; 

(3) Its comfortable stations with usual railroad 
station facilities; 

(4) Its covered platforms to shield patrons from 
inclement weather; 

(5) Its roadbed which makes riding easy and 
enjoyable; 

(6) Its frequent stations which make possible 
rendition of local as well as through express 
service; 

(7) Its adaptability for quick long haul trans- 
portation of passengers; 

(8) Its operations are seldom affected by 
weather conditions; 

(9) Its large carrying capacity per track because 
of train operation; 

(10) Its relative economy of operation; 

(11) Traffic and street noises are lessened for 
passengers using Rapid Transit facilities; 

The permanent character of the structure road 
bed and stations is such as to make necessary only 
ordinary maintenance. The property including the 
rolling stock has been well maintained. The present 
wooden cars can be made safe for many years by 
the expenditure of One Million Dollars, however, they 
should be retired as soon as practicable by replacing 
them with modern all steel car equipment, which 
would produce quieter, faster and more efficient 
transportation. 

It is axiomatic that a large metropolitan city of 
the size and character of Chicago is in need of rapid 
transit service. The only rapid transit facilities in 
Chicago today are the lines of the Chicago Rapid 
Transit system which afford the trunk lines for any 
comprehensive plan extending rapid transit facil- 
ities to all parts of the city. Evidence of the need of 
rapid transit service is borne out by the fact that 
40 per cent of the residents of the City of Chicago 
live within easy access of Rapid Transit service, al- 
though its system serves only 20 per cent of the city. 
To provide comfortable and high speed operation to 
the entire population of the city can only be accom- 
plished by an expansion of the present Chicago Rapid 
Transit system to make its service available to all 
residents of the city instead of the limited number 
it now serves. 

This can 'be effected 

(1) By unification of existing Rapid Transit and 
Surface Lines facilities, providing universal trans- 
fer privileges. 

(2) By physical extension of Rapid Transit Lines 
both by elevated structures and subway.

The surface lines transportation, with comparatively 
short hauls, would feed the more desirable long haul 
service of the Rapid Transit Lines, and at the same 
time intimately serve locally all parts of the city. 
Extensions to the present rapid transit system would 
not only serve transportation to and through the 
Central' Business District but would also facilitate 
travel Between points outside of the Loop area. 

In the event of unification, the present loop ter- 
minal facilities of the elevated system would quickly 
reach capacity, and additional terminal facilities 
would be needed. These facilities can only be pro- 
vided by the construction of subways through the 
Central Business District. Such construction would 
prevent any loss of time and further facilitate the 
patrons of rapid transit service. 

One of the great problems of the City of Chicago 
is its traffic congestion in the streets of its most 
important business, industrial and amusement dis- 
trict. The providing of additional highways in this 
downtown area is a financial, if not a physical im- 
possibility. The only manner in which it can be 
accomplished, and which would provide sufficient 
relief, is by a more intensive use of the present ele- 
vated system, together with expansions thereof by 
extending its present lines and increasing its ter- 
minal facilities through the construction of subways. 
Large numbers of people in short periods of time 
can only be transported on limited ways by the use 
of train operation. This can only be accomplished 
by the use of roadways restricted to one class of 
transportation. The carrying capacity of one lane 
of traffic comparable to one elevated track is as 
follows : 

Motor Coach 9,000 

Street Cars 16,000 

Elevated Trains 35,000 

•On the cordon count conducted by the Chicago As- 
sociation of Commerce in May, 1936, showed in the 
peak hour from 8:O0> A. M. to 9:00 A. M. that 154,357 
people entered the Central Business District by the 
following means of transportation: 

Motor Coach 14,857 requiring 425 

vehicles on the street. 

Street Cars 48,887 requiring 966 

vehicles on the street. 

Passenger Automobiles 28,050 requiring 16,5010 
vehicles on the street. 

Elevated Lines 62,563 requiring 

vehicles on the street. 



154.357 



If the 62,563 passengers carried by the Elevated 
Railroad above the surface of the street were superim- 
posed upon the street traffic it would have propor- 
tionately required an addition of 290 motor coaches, 
658 street cars and 11,246 automobiles, which would 
have produced such traffic congestion as to prevent 
the entry of this number of people to the district in 
that period of time, with the resultant loss of time 
and interference with business that would be a 
calamity to Chicago. 

The carrying of the hundreds of thousands o* 
people now being carried on the Elevated structure 
is probably the greatest single factor of safety in the 
transportation problem of Chicago. Fatalities on the 
streets of the City caused by surface transportation 
of all kinds and description, which is one of our most 
serious problems, would be tremendously increased 
were not these thousands kept above this traffic, and 



could undoubtedly be proportionately reduced by 
more intensively using the present Elevated facilities, 
and providing extensions of same. 

A unified transportation system for the City of 
Chicago would result in the following advantages and 
economies : 

(1) Universal transfer privileges between all 
local transportation companies. 

(2) Construction of Elevated extensions to tap 
territory in the outlying portions of the City of 
Chicago now unserved by it in order to render 
Rapid Transit service to the majority of the City's 
residents. 

(3) Construction of a subway in the Central 
Business District to provide additional terminal 
facilities for Rapid Transit service and to relieve 
traffic congestion in said area. 

(4) The utilization of present surface transpor- 
tation as feeders to the outlying branches of the 
Rapid Transit system. 

(5) A large increase of the use by the public of 
rapid transit service in obtaining quick transpor- 
tation for long or short hauls. 

(61 Operating economies which will result to 
the Surface Lines through the readjustment of 
schedules and car miles necessary to meet traffic 
requirements. 

(7) Elimination of duplicate lines of transporta- 
tion companies directly in competition with one 
another. 

(81 General lowering of operating expenses due 
to the utilization of rapid transit service which is 
a cheaper and better mode of transportation. 

(9) Reduction in cost of operation which will 
ultimately be reflected for the benefit of the public 
in the rates and quality of transportation service 
rendered. 

(10) The rate differential now in existence be- 
tween the Surface Lines and the Rapid Transit 
would be preserved, with the result that a pas- 
senger would only pay an additional 3c for the 
superior service rendered by the Rapid Transit or 
combination of any two transportation companies. 

(11) Additions or extensions in sparsely settled 
outlying districts to be served by the use of motor 
coaches relieving the companies of the cost of con- 
structing overhead or surface tracks. 

(12 i Wherever possible expensive street car 
operations to be eliminated and motor coach serv- 
ice substituted.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



June 9, 1937 



Previous thereto, on May 27, 1937, the proponents 
of the "Abbott Plan" for reorganization of the Chi- 
cago Surface Lines submitted to me an outline of 
suggested terms and conditions for a local transporta- 
tion franchise to be issued to them. 

The suggestions contained in these two communi- 
cations are similar in general thought, but differ in 
the suggested method of approach and in detail of 
achievement of the ultimate objectives outlined in 
my statement of January 26, 1937. 

In order that the City Council may have before it 
a comprehensive plan which satisfies the needs of 
the City for improved and unified service, it is 
urgently requested that your committee immediately 
undertake, jointly with the representatives of the 
surface lines, the formulation of such a comprehen- 
sive plan. While I realize that many differences of 
opinion may arise, it is hoped that each interest will 
treat with them in a spirit of cooperation and con- 
ciliation, and that the city may look forward to the 
early submission of a comprehensive plan which gives 
promise of early relief in the form of improved and 
extended transit facilities. 

If this is done, I am confident that the City Council 
will give prompt consideration to the passage of the 
necessary ordinances for approval and submission 
to public referendum. 

It should be realized that the City is primarily 
concerned in a reasonable capital value for the new 
company and in the early achievement of unified and 
modernized transportation. The matter of consoli- 
dating properties and composing differences between 
financial interests is the private problem of the com- 
panies. However, the city and its representatives 
stand ready to cooperate and assist in any way that 
may be helpful to an early realization of our aims. 

Yours very truly, 

Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor.

Correction of Certain Errors in the Revised Chicago Code 
of 1931. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Corporation Counsel: 

Department of Law,) 
Chicago, June 1, 1937,} 

To the Honorable, The City Council of the City of 
Chicago, Chicago, Illinois: 

Gentlemen — It has come to our attention that 
those sections of the Revised Chicago Code of 1931 
which deal with the Bureau of Fire Prevention of 
the Fire Department contain an incorrect reference 
to chapter 76 of said code. The correct reference 
intended is "Article X of chapter 67" of the code. 

It has also come to our attention that in those 
sections relating to the Board of Examiners of Sta- 
tionary Engineers there is an incorrect reference to 
chapter 100 of the code. The correct reference is

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. That the City Comptroller of the City 
of Chicago be and he is hereby authorized and di- 
rected to enter into, for and on behalf of the City of 
Chicago, an agreement with The First National Bank 
of Chicago, as trustee, for the Estate of Lucius G. 
Fisher, deceased, for a lease of a piece of ground ap- 
proximately three hundred sixty-five (365) square 
feet in area and as hereinafter described, for use in 
the reinforcement of the east bridgetender's house 
of the West Monroe Street Bridge over the South 
Branch of the Chicago River; said agreement shall 
be approved by the Mayor and shall be in substan- 
tially the following form : 



This agreement made and entered into this 

day of June. A. D. nineteen hundred and 

thirty-seven, by and between The First National 
Bank of Chicago, trustee for the Estate of Lucius 
G. Fisher, party of the first part, and the City of 
Chicago, a municipal corporation of the State of 
Illinois, party of the second part, witnesseth; that, 

Whereas, The party of the first part is the owner 
of all that part of Lot Four (4) in Block eighty (80) 
in School Section Addition to Chicago, lying west 
of the middle line of a wall, which middle line at 
the south end thereof is one hundred forty and 
ninety-two one-hundredths (140.92) feet west of 
the east line of said Lot four (4) and at the north 
end thereof is one hundred forty-one and eighteen 
one-hundredths (141.18) feet west of said east line, 
situated in the County of Cook and State of Illinois; 
said premises being located on the north side of 
Monroe street and on the east side of the Chicago 
River, having a frontage on West Monroe street 
of 100 feet and on the Chicago River of 99 feet: 
and 

Whereas. The buildings with which the said 
premises were improved have been razed by the 
party of the first part to approximately street grade 
and the walls below this level have been left stand- 
ing; and 

Whereas, It is the intention of the party of the 
first part to fill the space beween said walls with 
earth or other solid filling material, and to prepare 
the site for use as -an automobile storage space; and 

Whereas, the party of the second part has built 
and is maintaining a bridgetender's house on the 
dock immediately west of the west wall of said 
former improvement in conformity with an agree- 
ment for a lease with Charles B. Osborne, as trus- 
tee under the last will and testament of Lucius G. 
Fisher, deceased, the date of said agreement being 
May 31, 1918, which agreement is still effective 
and is to continue in full force and effect, and to 
which this agreement is supplemental; and 

Whereas, The party of the second part is appre- 
hensive that the proposed filling will endanger the 
stability of the dock upon which the said bridge- 
tender's house is supported and that the old build- 
ing walls are inadequate to insure the safe mainte- 
nance of the supports of the said bridgetender's 
house; and 

Whereas, The old building wall which is the 
property of the party of the first part, along the 
north line of Monroe street will separate the pro- 
posed fill from the bridge operating machinery, 
and a failure in said wall would seriously impair 
the usefulness of the bridge by interfering with its 
operation and causing damage to the approach 
structure; and 

Whereas. The party of the second part is desir- 
ous of strengthening the structure of the said 
bridgetender's house against wind forces to which 
the removal of the formerly adjoining building 
have left it exposed, and of improving the sta- 
bility of the said structure against possible over- 
turning; and 

Whereas, In order to carry out the proposed 
plan of the party of the second part to strengthen 
and stabilize the bridgetender's house it will be

An Ordinance 

Amending an ordinance passed by the City Council 
on January 10, 1935, providing for the improvement 
of a portion of Torrence avenue out of Motor Fuel 
Tax Funds. 

Whereas, an ordinance passed by this Council 
January 10, 1935, and printed on page 3460 of the 
Journal of Proceedings, provided for the improve- 
ment of a portion of Torrence avenue, including the 
construction of a vertical-lift steel highway bridge 
and approaches as a specific project of construction 
out of Motor Fuel Tax Funds; and 

Whereas, Section 4 of said ordinance stated that 

"The relocation of the existing bridge and its 
subsequent removal are to be done by city day 
labor at an estimated cost of $50,000.00 and the 
permanent lift bridge and approaches are to be 
built by contract at an estimated cost of $750,- 
000.00"; 

and 

Whereas, the amount therein stated for the lift 
bridge was intended to be supplemented by a Fed- 
eral grant, for which an application was authorized 
by an order of said Council, immediately preceding 
said ordinance in said Journal; and 

Whereas, the relocation of the existing bridge, on 
account of difficulties and conditions that were not 
anticipated, necessitated an expenditure of $65,000, 
leaving no funds available for the subsequent re- 
moval of said bridge in the allotment provided for 
that purpose in said Section 4; and 

Whereas, if said removal is done by contract in- 
stead of by city day labor, said work may be eligible 
for inclusion of such Federal grant funds as may be 
or may become available; now therefore 

Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. That Section 4 of said ordinance of 
January 10', 1935, be and the same is hereby amended 
to read as follows : 



"Section 4. The relocation of the existing bridge 
is to be done by city day labor at a cost of $65,000 
and the subsequent removal thereof, together with 
the construction of the permanent lift bridge and 
approaches, are to be done by contract at an esti- 
mated cost, as to Motor Fuel Tax Funds, of $735,000, 
to be supplemented by Federal grant funds as far 
as the same are required and available." 

Section 2. The City Clerk of the City of Chicago is 
hereby directed to transmit two (2) certified copies 
of this ordinance to the Department of Public Works 
and Buildings, Division of Highways, Springfield, Illi- 
nois, through its District Engineer.

SPECIAL COMMITTEE. 



In the Matter of More Adequate and Improved Housing 
Facilities for Chicago. 

The Special Committee on Rentals and Housing sub- 
mitted the following report, which was, on motion of 
Alderman Egan, deferred and ordered published: 

Chicago, June 9, 1937. 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 

The need for better and more adequate housing in 
Chicago is obvious, and any real effort to improve 
housing conditions in this city must be viewed as an 
all-Chicago responsibility. If we endeavor to pro- 
vide a solution, it must be adequate and assure a 
reasonable degree of permanency, and it must be 
developed in an orderly way in accordance with a 
city-wide plan. 

No one formula will magically eradicate the con- 
tagion of bad housing. No one proposal will cure 
blight or slum decay. No one agency of our social, 
economic or political life can meet the challenge of 
inappropriate land use, or rebuild Chicago. 

The whole effort must be the concern of all the 
resources and all the public and private forces of 
Chicago's citizenry. 

A new building code, in and of itself, will not re- 
make Chicago. A well conceived demolition program 
will not revitalize the city. Slum clearance projects 
are not the only answers to our housing needs. Re- 
zoning the city is not the be-all and end-all of a 
more practical and beautiful Chicago. The revision 
of our realty tax structure is not the only pathway 
to more and better housing. It is a combination of all 
these elements, and other factors also, well thought 
out and well integrated, with responsibility well dis- 
tributed that will help regenerate Chicago. 

Whatever is done must include all these elements, 
but no intelligent approach toward a solution of the 
problem can be made without first gathering, sifting, 
analyzing and studying many facts regarding land and 
building uses and values, revenues, finances, taxes, 
zoning, restrictions, environment, and a multitude of 
other related matters. 

The first essential is to make a comprehensive land 
use survey and real property inventory, not only for 
the purpose of securing necessary housing data and 
other facts requisite in developing plans for rehabil- 
itating Chicago's blighted areas, but also in order to 
give definite factual material that will enable the 
City Council to revise its ordinances and especially 
its zoning ordinances to bring it more into line with 
actual and possible future land usages. 

Today a very large part of the city is blighted; 
within the blighted districts both population and 
property values have been declining steadily for the 
past twenty years or more, in spite of a general in- 
crease for the city as a whole. Thousands of build- 



ings have been torn down and but few new ones 
erected to take their place, thus reducing assessed 
valuations. Tax receipts from blighted areas are only 
a fractional part of the cost of providing municipal 
services to those areas, because blighted conditions 
render property unproductive; tax delinquencies are 
mounting at a staggering rate; and as a result the 
city's revenue is continually being curtailed and ren- 
dered uncertain. 

The correction of these conditions is a matter of 
city planning, and is so recognized in current national 
and state legislation, such as the Wagner-Steagall 
Housing Bill. Chicago, in the Chicago Plan Commis- 
sion, already has an official city planning department 
of demonstrated knowledge, ability and experience. 
Under the aforementioned legislation the City Plan 
Commission, in any event, must pass on all housing, 
rezoning and rehabilitation plans before they are 
presented to the City Council, and must coordinate 
such plans with the Plan of Chicago. Therefore the 
Chicago Plan Commission obviously is the logical and 
proper body to carry on the work which your com- 
mittee strongly feels should be undertaken at as 
early a time as possible. 

Because of the urgent need of finding a solution to 
the related problems of housing and rehabilitating 
the city's blighted areas and restoring them to sound 
economic value, usefulness and productivity, 

Your committee respectfully recommends 

a. That the City Plan Commission be empow- 
ered, enabled and directed to make a thorough 
study of blighted areas in the City of Chicago and 
report to the City Council its findings and recom- 
mendations; 

b. That the Chicago Plan Commission be em- 
powered, enabled and directed to make a city-wide 
Land Use Survey and Real Property Inventory; 

c. That the Chicago Plan Commission be em- 
powered and directed to report to the City Council 
appropriate recommendations, based upon the facts 
developed by the foregoing study and survey, as to 
needed revisions in laws and ordinances; 

d. That the work of amending the Chicago 
Building Code be completed as soon as possible; 

e. That ihe General Assembly of the State of 
Illinois be requested to include in any program for 
amending the State Constitution the proposition for 
eliminating personal property tax on mortgages: 
and, in the event of the holding of a Constitutional 
Convention prior to the submission of a constitu- 
tional amendment, the matter of the elimination of 
said tax on mortgages be recommended to said con- 
vention. 

f. That the City Council urgently petition the 
Public Works Administration of the Federal Gov- 
ernment for rapid action in completing the three 
Federal housing projects now under construction 
and the contemplated South Park Gardens project 
on the South Side. 

g. In conclusion, we suggest that citizens of 
Chicago assist its Council and public officers in 
urging upon Congress immediate passage of the 
Wagner-Steagall Housing Bill so as to provide 
funds for slum clearance and assistance for those 
desiring to become owners of homes. 



Respectfully submitted,

Proposed Equipping of Police Riot Squads with Motion 
Picture Cameras, Etc. 

Alderman Massen presented the following resolution, 
which was ordered published and referred to the Com- 
mittee on Police and Municipal Institutions: 

Whereas, The City Administration has indicated 
that, in the case of the recent labor disturbances in 
which the police of Chicago have been called to serve, 
"the position of the Administration and the Police 
Department is to protect life and property"; and 

Whereas, It was nevertheless charged by a nation- 
ally-known labor leader, in a recent interview pub- 



June 9, 1937 



UNFINISHED BUSINESS

lished throughout the country, that the police of 
this city had been "guilty of planned murder" in the 
recent Memorial Day steel riot, and further, that "the 
nation knows the Chicago Police force is corrupt; it 
is the same force that for years has protected the 
hoodlum and thug" and that "the brutal massacre 
of the Chicago steel workers is a blot on the national 
conscience"; and 

Whereas, The point of controversy between .the 
City Administration and the Police Department and 
their critics appears to involve largely the simple 
question of who provoked the regrettable Memorial 
Day violence and how the various participants con- 
ducted themselves; and 

Whereas, It is clear that, in order to protect the 
reputation of Chicago and its officials, an unassailable 
record of actual riot occurrences would be of the 
greatest value in combating unfair criticism and 
establishing the truth in similar situations in the 
future; 

Therefore Be it, and it is hereby, by the City Coun- 
cil of the City of Chicago, Resolved: 

That the Police Department of Chicago be ade- 
quately equipped with standard motion-picture 
cameras; that every police riot squad be provided 
with such equipment; that police officers capable of 
operating such equipment efficiently be detailed to 
each police riot squad or squads assigned to duty; 
and that, in the future, such officers take pictures 
which will constitute a permanent uncontrovertible 
record of the entire duration of any action precipitat- 
ing, during or following any so-called "riot"; and 
it is further 

Resolved, That such film be the property of the 
Police Department and available for examination by 
public officials, the press and the public; that such 
film be processed against deterioration for safe-keep- 
ing for long-time record purposes; that examination 
by competent experts be made to establish, in the 
case of each reel of film taken, the fact that such 
film has not been spliced or tampered with in any 
manner whatsoever and is, in fact, an accurate visual 
record of the entire action; and that the findings of 
such experts as to the location and duration of events 
pictured on such film form a permanent record in 
the case of each such reel of film.

an application under the zoning ordinance to per- 
mit, in an apartment district, the establishment 
and operation of a retail food shop in the base- 
ment of an existing apartment building on prem- 
ises at 4639 Lake Park Avenue; and 

Whereas, the decision of the Commissioner of 
buildings rendered October 16, 1936 reads: 

'Application not approved. Proposed improve- 
ment does not conform with requirements of 
zoning ordinance'; 

and 

Whereas, the proposed use is to be located in 
an apartment district and would violate the strict 
letter of the zoning ordinance; and 

Whereas, a public hearing was held on this ap- 
plication by the board of appeals at its regular 
meeting held on January 4, 1937, after due public 
notice by publication in the Chicago Journal of 
Commerce on October 24, 1936; and 

Whereas, the use district maps show that the 
premises are located in an apartment district; and 

Whereas, the board of appeals is authorized by 
law in cases where there are practical difficulties 



or particular hardship in the way of carrying out 
the strict letter of the zoning ordinance to hear 
and recommend variations of such ordinance to 
the City Council under rules provided in the zon- 
ing ordinance; and 

Whereas, in the rules provided in the zoning 
ordinance relating to the authority of the board of 
appeals to recommend variations to the City Coun- 
cil there appears the following rule in Section 28, 
par. (1) : 

'Granting of permission to devote premises in 
a *** Apartment District to a non-conforming 
*** C use, *** in a block, or in a block directly 
across a street from a block in which there ex- 
ists a non-conforming *** C use *** of a sim- 
ilar nature **"; 

and 

Whereas, the board of appeals, having fully 
heard the testimony and arguments of the parties 
and being fully advised in the premises, finds that 
the proposed use is to be located in a block in 
which there exists a non-conforming use of a sim- 
ilar nature and that the applicant should be granted 
relief on the ground of particular hardship in the 
way of carrying out the strict letter of the zoning 
ordinance on condition that all permits necessary 
for the establishment of the proposed use shall be 
obtained within three months after the passage of 
an ordinance by the City Council and that all other 
ordinances of the city of Chicago shall be complied 
with and that in granting such permission the use 
permitted shall be deemed to be conforming in the 
same sense as though it were established prior to 
the time of the passage of the zoning ordinance; 
and 

Whereas, the board further finds that the prem- 
ises are located in an apartment district; that there 
is a similar non-conforming use in the block in 
which the premises are located; that there is par- 
ticular hardship in this case and that the variation 
may be made consistently in harmony with the 
intent and purpose of the zoning regulations and 
would not be detrimental to the public welfare, 
safety or health, 

Resolved, that the board of appeals by virtue of 
the authority conferred upon it does hereby rec- 
ommend that the City Council enact the following 
ordinance :

"Citizens' Weed 



Alderman Bowler presented the following resolution: 

Whereas, Much suffering is caused to persons sus- 
ceptible to hay fever every year from pollen of cer- 
tain weeds, especially ragweed; and 

Whereas, Many sufferers from hay fever are 
obliged to leave their business affairs and go to other 
places in search of relief from hay fever; and 

Whereas, The occurrence of one attack of hay 
fever does not protect an individual against future 
attacks but, on the contrary, tends to make future 
attacks more severe; and 

Whereas, The fertility of soil and the climate of 
Chicago are ideal for growing weeds as well as useful 
crops; and 

Whereas, The State House of Representatives has 
recently passed House Joint Resolution No. 25, call- 
ing upon the Department of Agriculture of the State 
to establish a comprehensive weed control program, 
and requesting that the period from August 8 to 
August 22, inclusive, be designated as "Weed De- 
struction Days"; and 

Whereas, High growths of weeds at street inter- 
sections have been alleged to be the contributing 
factor in automobile accidents, because they obscure 
the view of the approaching motor cars; and 

Whereas, Rank growths of high weeds sometimes 
afford hiding- places for criminal element to lie in 
wait for victims; now, therefore be it

Alderman Bowler presented the following resolution: 



Whereas, The City Council of the City of Chicago, 
on June 16, 1936, page 1868 of the Journal of the 
Proceedings of the City Council, authorized the 
Board of Local Improvements to make application to 
the Federal Emergency Administration of Public 
Works for a grant to defray a portion of the cost of 
the construction of sundry street improvements des- 
ignated by said Administration as Project 111. 1728-D; 
and 

Whereas, Subsequently thereto said grant was al- 
lowed by the said Federal Emergency Administration 
of Public Works and accepted by the City Council of 
the City of Chicago, said grant being on a basis of 
45% of the cost of said street improvements; and 

Whereas, The City Council of the City of Chicago, 
on October 7, 1936, page 2416 of the Journal of the 
Proceedings of the City Council, authorized the Board 
of Local Improvements to make application to the 
Federal Emergency Administration of Public Works 
for a grant to defray a portion of the cost of the 
construction of S. Damen avenue from W. Roosevelt 
road to W. Harrison street, designated as Project 111. 
1752; and 

Whereas, Said application is still pending; and 

Whereas, It is logical that the grant for the im- 
provement of sundry streets designated as 111. 1728-D 
be extended to include said S. Damen avenue by rea- 
son of the fact that the said S. Damen avenue con- 
nects through S. Ogden avenue with W. Harrison 
street, which is one of the streets included in Project 
111. 1728-D; therefore, 

Be It Resolved by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago, That the Board of Local Improvements be 
and it is hereby authorized and directed to make ap- 
plication to the Federal Emergency Administration 
of Public Works to extend said Project 111. 1728-D to 
include the improvement of S. Damen avenue from 
W. Roosevelt road to W. Harrison street, and to fur- 
nish such information and take such action as said
